Sometimes the simplest tools are the most useful. There are few tools I use EVERY day, and this pair of tweezers is one of them....
So far, so simple.
But there are features about these precision tweezers which make them indispensable.....
Firstly they have lovely angled points which are very fine. In addition, the inside edges of the points are finely ridged, which help provide a firm grip to any tiny item.
They are nicely weighted and balanced, and easy to use. The 'springing' is very light and consequently they aren't tiring to use for prolonged periods.
I've had this particular pair for nigh on 20 years and have only been able to find only one other identical pair languishing in the Hastings Sewing Centre several years ago. It was from old stock and despite extensive internet searching I have never found another, so I guard my two pairs very closely.
Over the years I've tried many other tweezers, including the dreadfully counter-intuitive 'reverse tweezers' which have a default closed position, and have to be squeezed to open them, but always return to my old favourites.
They have a multitude of uses, including turning tiny sleeves, placing individual silk bows and roses, and of course creating miniature wigs.
